My condolence to the family and especially to Louise. I attended law school with Joe and I have many memories and fondly remember seeing him many times at the school and received kisses on both cheeks as his way of greeting me. I am very sorry that I will not be able to attend. Buzz Kanter

My condolences on Joe's passing. I will be out of town and unable to attend his services but wanted to express my sympathies. I knew Joe through Wendy's and can say that he was truly one of the great (and unique) members of those early franchisees. God bless you all in your time of sorrow.

It was my pleasure to get to know Mr. Karam several years ago through the WCOL radiothon to raise money for St. Jude's. Through him, I went to work there for a couple of years and have fully supported them. He will be greatly missed.

Dear David and Family,
We are saddened to hear this news. I came to know Joe well in the early days of Wendy's, during a difficult time in the Brand's history. He treated me with respect and kindness during my visits to the Las Vegas market. He impressed me with his savvy common sense and dry wit. His legacy will live on in the terrific family that he sired, and I know he will be watching from Heaven with pride in the family as it carries on his values, and builds upon his accomplishments. He was a patriot and a contributor to his friends, the Wendy's Brand, his community and our nation. Our sincerest condolences, Steve and Diana Farrar

From : Jack and Noony Malone
To Lisa, Suzanne, David and the entire Karam family. Noony and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you on the loss of your father. He left us and anyone he met, I suspect, a strong impression of the man he was: in his faith and his love for his family. We were blessed to have known him and trust he has earned his eternal reward. We pray that you rest in the comfort of God's love and compassion.
Love Jack and Noony

From : Mary Beth Thomas
Dear Aunt Louise,

As you know, you and Uncle Joe and the entire Karam family were integral in my and my family's life. Moving to Texas separated us geographically but not in ongoing regard and love. My father Bob Thomas loved Joe deeply and I smile when I think of them together now. What a match! Fondest regards, Mary Beth and all of the Thomas children.

Dear Karam Family, When I was 19 years old (1964), I had the good fortune to be referred to Mr. Karam by a psychologist who worked at the Children's Mental Health Center. My family lived in Ft Wayne, Indiana, but I was a freshman at Ohio State in Columbus. At the end of my freshman year, I went home to spend the quarter break with my family. Sad to say, my father committed suicide a few days after I arrived home. I was left with a very ill mother and 3 younger siblings. Knowing that I had to continue my studies at Ohio State and care for my family, I moved my remaining family to Columbus. We were all very distraught. I decided that we all needed some guidance, so I took everyone to the Children's Mental Health Center. There I was assigned to a psychologist who had the wisdom to see that my family needed a lot of support. In addition to the counseling, my psychologist arranged for me to meet Mr. Karam. He was like an angle sent from heaven to help me! He provided the legal direction I needed to keep my family together, and still continue my studies at OSU. He was a kind, generous man. I know he has received a gold star in heaven!
